When Cells Misbehave: Cancer

Year 6 took part in the pre-show and post-show exercises which captured the distance of learning travelled by the children after the wonderful assembly and hands-on workshop they participated in. Year 6 were able to voice any concerns they had about cancer and also how much the show/activities helped them to understand cancer.

Year 6 were honest and very mature about the questions asked and the discussions had around the class exercises. They used the knowledge gained along with scientific language to enhance their understanding.

‘West Side Story’ at Bonus Pastor

Year 6 visited Bonus Pastor to see one of the greatest musicals of all time, West Side Story. The performance was directed by Miss Clarke, a drama teacher at the college. Years 7, 8 & 9 took to the stage to perform the 1st scene for 3 local primary schools and St Augustine’s were happy to be there. It was a fantastic afternoon which year 6 thoroughly enjoyed – we were amazed to see some familiar faces in the performance. A big thank you to Mr Manning for organising the afternoon.
